Biography

Derek Bailey (b. 29 January 1930, Sheffield, Yorkshire, Britain, d. 25 Dec 2005, London, Britain) established the business week/celebration in 1977 and, despite all of the odds, several adjustments of place and the casual annual hiccup, the unpredictability of its economic success (or elsewhere) it continued to be going, solid and ever-surprising, in to the early 00s. Bailey’s idea was to gather musicians using a shared curiosity about improvisation, as well as the label they laboured under (jazz or not really: Bailey wished to steer clear of the name) was unimportant. He’d assemble a assortment of musicians and find out what occurred, the music artists themselves developing and dissolving playing products because the week continued. Potentially a formula for devastation, the results had been never significantly less than interesting, and frequently marvelous. Music from lots of the sessions was documented and released on Bailey’s Incus label.
